Nice player, very friendly interface. I liked it as an easy reliable player for Tiger but it isn't as stable in Leopard and Snow Leopard. Wish the developers had stayed with this program.

Freakin awesome. The VLC for the rest of us. :) It sports many of the features that VLC does, with a much more friendly UI and better QuickTime integration.

Thank you for making this program. The only add-on that Quicktime does not have, is the ability to make playlists. This program has it!

Added note - the only thing missing to this program is an equalizer. Get that installed and it'd be perfect.

This is a must have program for running multiple Quicktime movies simultaneously (one right after another) thus elimating any Quicktime editing programs. Now I can listen and watch my favorite Quicktime Music Videos without bearing the burden of having to do any editing. Great job!

I either did something wrong or simply lack sufficient hardware for this app.

On a 500 Mhz G4 with 768 MB with nothing else running BitPlayer managed 10-20 frames per *minute* and no sound. With 2 instances of mencoder gobbling RAM and CPU time in the background VLC, MPlayer and QuickTime Player could all handle the same files with no trouble.

These were all .avi files encoded with various encoders - ffmpeg, mencoder, and unknown Windows hosted apps.

BitPlayer is on my "shortlist" of must-have apps. Very user friendly and rightly belong in the Mac world. Fullscreen and playlist is the one-two punch of BitPlayer. Thanks-a-lot.

I use this as a presentation solution because of its dual screen support: notes on the PowerBook, slides, movies on the data projector. Simpler and cleaner than PowerPoint.

Bit Player is just indispensable to open the (quite many) files that VLC and MacPlayer open but cannot read (not mentionning the famously unsuccessful reader : Apple's QT).
